Tool for £30?

PostPost by: GHill » Sun Apr 05, 2015 8:38 am

Hi All

So it's approaching my birthday and the olds have said they will buy me a tool for up to £30!

So what tool do you suggest that I will get most valuable use for my plus 2!

Cheers
Gareth

Add a few quid if necessary and get a Dremel.

It never ceases to amaze me how useful mine is.

A carb synchrometer is a handy item.
